I cannot speak of the film as an adaptation since I have not read the novel, but as a film I admit that it surprised me for the better. With its pros and cons, the film hooks you up and leaves you with a satisfying ending.
We meet with Anna Fox, a woman secluded at home due to agoraphobia. He has been watching life through the window all his life. A good family settles in the house opposite and becomes obsessed with it. One night she sees a murder, and from that moment even she herself does not know what is real and what is not.
I'm not going to tell more than what can be seen in the trailer, because it will ruin the whole story, which is worth it.
"The Woman in the Window" has a rather theatrical production. Something I liked was, first of all, the scene in which all the characters in the film appear together, which I think is great, as if we were watching a theatrical stage and they were on it.
There are famous actors in the film who do not stand out properly, but leave acceptable performances. Amy Adams, who carries almost the entire weight of the film, and has some very memorable moments.
The extraordinary Gary Oldman, who doesn't have much of a problem either, but Julianne Moore above all else, a short but intense role.
In the rest of the cast, we find familiar faces such as Wyatt Russell, who is slowly entering the difficult Hollywood, Fred Hechinger, Brian Tyree Henry, Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
The last thing I liked was that I thought it was going to be a claustrophobic movie, after all, she's at home all day. But this is a really bright and rather large place. It is also true that they may have wanted to show us their home in this way when she had the opposite condition, such as agoraphobia.
The predominant colors are yellow, blue and red, they are visible throughout the house and the truth is that they attract a lot of attention, as I said earlier, they manage to make the house such a cozy and not very gloomy place, which is perhaps what you can expect from a movie.
Another setback you may have seen in the movie is a problem she never hides when it comes to spying on neighbors. She stands out of the window with her camera so calmly and surprised that her neighbors call her and ask to leave them alone.
But listen, like I said, The Woman in the Window has its pros and cons, but overall it felt like a good thriller that gets what it wants when hooked for 100 minutes and surprised with the ending. ... So don't miss it on Netflix on May 14th.Источник: 10ex.org
